Abstract: The X-ray diffraction analysis of some soil identified in Rivers State of Nigeria, Sodium Aluminum Silicate and Potassium Aluminum Silicate and were studied using the Debye-Scherrer method and a diffractometer. The lattice constants were evaluated using radiation of wavelength, = 1.5418 ?? and the results obtained were 13.730 0.006?? and 13.500 0.006?? for and respectively. The sizes of the unit cell were examined in terms of textural parameters such as particle size and number of atoms per unit cell. The values of the lattice constants suggest their Bravis lattice, the metal to metal distances, the metal to non-metal distances and the distance of closest approach of the atom centres. The metal to metal and non-metal to non-metal distances were obtained as respectively for Sodium Aluminum Silicate; while it???s metal to non-metal distance was obtained as ??. Also metal to metal and non-metal to non-metal distances were obtained as respectively for Potassium Aluminum Silicate; and it???s metal to non-metal distance was obtained as ??.
